Estimation Board

Print this topicEmail this topic

The Estimation Board app provides a view of unaccepted stories, defects, and defect suites organized by plan estimate sizes. Default sizes are provided when you first add the app. You can customize the sizes for the app by updating the settings under the App Tools menu.

Features

The Estimation Board allows for:

  • Drag-and-drop controls to quickly change the plan estimate of a story or defect
  • Filtering cards by type
  • Direct links to stories and defects
  • Custom settings for plan estimate sizes
  • Use the Auto Height setting to automatically adjust the vertical space of the app based on the amount of visible data

Estimation Board

Some stories and defects will be sized where their plan estimates do not exactly match the size column. They are either too small for the larger size or too large for the smaller size. These stories and defects do not have their planned estimates auto-updated to the size of the column on display. They will be auto-updated when dragged to another size.

Note: If you have manual ranking enabled, you will not be able to use drag-and-drop re-ranking within a state.

Settings

To customize the sizes, select Settings from the App Tools drop-down menu. Sizes require a column name and plan estimate value. Add a new size by clicking the Add link. Delete a size by clicking the Delete link to the right of the size. Click Save to keep your changes.
